Rose Wholesale Products Review

Remember I did a giveaway with on my older blog? I have told you that they are going to send me some stuff too, and that I will review them and let you know what I thought about the shipping and everything once I get them. So... They're here!!! :D

So I got a bag/purse and a watch. The bag retails for $9.35, and the watch is $4.26. Yes you've read right. These are the prices at RoseWholesale!
So first of all, I want you to understand that although they have sent me these products to review, I wasn't told WHAT to say in the review or anything. This post contains only my genuine thoughts!
So with that said..
I can honestly say that the only thing I was pretty dissapointed with was the shipping time. I got a tracking number from them and a link to a general tracking site with no exact instructions as to how I can find it. The site had multiple shipping companies and I wasn't told what is the company that my items were shipped with, and after I have asked them, they just sent me the same link again. Don't understand me wrong, the girl from RoseWholesale that was talking with me by email was so very nice! It's just this thing. I had to look it up on the internet and I have found a forum where somebody gave a direct link, where you put your tracking number in the actual URL to find it.
I have received the items 4 weeks after they have told me the tracking number. (I have ordered something from ebay about a week after they have told me the tracking number, and received the item from ebay a week before the items from RoseWholesale arrived..)
BUT, I guess it was worth the waiting :) For a price like this? the items are definitely above my expectations! I have read a lot about scam sites that the items look completely different when they arrive, from what they look like in the pictures on the site. And this is not the case with
The watch looks very well made (definitely not less than $5!)

The watch came with a battery inside already, which was pretty unexpected (in a good way). It has a rubber strap, and the holes on the strap, for the buckle tongue, are actually sealed to begin with. You need to pull the buckle tounge through one of them, according to the size you need, to open it. Which I find really cool for some reason :) never seent his before in a watch. lol.


It comes in 8 different colors that you can choose from. I have chose the black one, because for me, it looks very classy and elegant. Love it!

The purse also looks very well made and expensive. The bottom is actually a bit more narrow than how it looks like in the picture below, I guess it's the angle of the photo..

I really like the whole kitty theme of it ^_^ The details on this bag really make it look and feel very well made and special.


It has a medium length handle, so you can hold in in your hand, hang in on your arm or on the shoulder. It has a pocket on the outside with a kitty charm. The inside part is very big with no dividers and I like it a lot! It also has a big zipper all across the inner part, with a kitty charm on it as well. I find it very comfortable and safe that it has it, because a lot of bags don't have a zipper in the big part.
On the inside, it has two small pockets for your cellphone etc. and one more little zipped pocket.

It also came with a longer strap inside, that you can attach to the sides of the bag.

Overall, I find it very comfortable, well made, beautiful, and detailed.
The bottom line is that this is that both of these items are pretty amazing for their price! RoseWholesale also has lots of items with free shipping on their site, which is so great! I think it's a great place to get some great stuff for a great value or even buy some great gifts and save yourself some money!

Thank you so much, RoseWholesale, for these amazing items! <3

Sexy Red Velvet Ombre Lips

Hey guys!
Today I am coming to you with a new makeup tutorial! Or to be more exact - a LIP tutorial! :)
We all know red lips can be tricky. But who doesn't love a red lip every now and then? Or at least at special occasions. Red lips look great on anybody, I think, if you find the right shade of red that suits your skin and hair color, and if you do it right!
Adding a black outline around the red lip to make it look even fancier? Uuuu.. you got me! BUT, it can be even TRICKIER. Right?
Well, not really.
Today, I am going to show you a quick and easy way to create a very sexy, vampy, elegant red velvet lip, with a black outline that is gradually fading into the red. Sounds yummy? Oh Yeah! The only thing that can be tricky about it is not messing up around the lip and creating a very sharp, clean and crispy line around it. And in the video tutorial I AM showing you a little trick I do at the end to achieve this effect! :)
All you are going to need for this is: a lip balm, a black pencil, red lipstick (preferably matte, if you want to create a velvety look), and a great lip brush! (I am using my very favorite L05 lip brush by Sigma).

Scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the video tutorial on this look!

Katy Perry Roar Makeup Tutorial

Hey guys!
I had this idea of making a new playlist on my Youtube Channel of Celebrity Inspired Makeup Tutorials! I am going to recreate a celebrity look every other week and I really hope you'll like it! :))  I am NOT saying I look like any of the celebrities who's looks I am going to recreate, OR that I always know the exact products or methods they (or their makeup artists) have used to create their looks. I am just going to try and mimic the looks with the products I have, as close as possible, and show you step by step tutorials on them! :) Hope you'll like it.
P.S - As I am a makeup artist, I will show you hoe I would do it on another person who would ask me to recreate the look. However, keep in mind that same looks might look differently on different people, because of the naturally different face features and skin/eye color.

That said, I really hope you will enjoy this series and try recreating the looks I will show!
So make sure to subscribe!

Also, feel free to send me pictures of celebrity looks you would like me to recreate (or pictures of yourself, wearing the looks I have recreated, based on my tutorials) to @MakeUp_ArtFreak on twitter with #MakeupFreakCeleb. :)


Products I have used in the tutorial:
MAC Studio Finish concealer in NW20
Coastal Scents 88 Eyeshadow Palette
Sigma Eyeshadow Base in Persuade
Sigma Bare Palette
Rimmel London Scandal Eyes in 005 - Nude
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Zero
Maybelline Great Lash Big Mascara in Brownish Black
MAC Lip Pencil in Dervish
MAC Kissable Lip Color in Woo Me
NARS Laguna Bronzer
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in DollFace

Galaxy/Space Nail Art Tutorial! (Highly Requested!)

Hey guys! Welcome back to my new blog :)
Remember my video on 5 Different Ways To Wear Eyeliner Plus Tips And Tricks on how to apply it? (Click here to see it).
In that video I wore a galaxy style nails art on my nails, and a lot of you guys have requested a tutorial on it! So... FINALLY! I did it! :)
It's very easy to create it. A lot easier than it looks. And you don't have to use the same colors I have used. Any color that will remind you of the space will do! 
All you need to create it is: a dark background color as a base (black, dark blue, deep purple..), several additional colors to create the galaxies, a white (or other light) color nail polish for the stars, a sparkly top coat (optional), a toothpick and a sponge. 
Check out the vide tutorial below for step by step instructions!
